mentalist, and he's astonished celebs like Barbra streisand, Leonardo Dicaprio with his apparent mind reading ability and his book "Mind reader" is on sale now so for lior it's time for him to try to blow our minds. Welcome. Amy and I are so excited. Mind reading. Fun. It goes without saying this is an unusual talent. It is an unusual talent, yes. When did you know this was a talent you had. Something I started when I was 6 years old and started develop more and more because it's not a magic trick it's not an illusion it's based on abilities to understand how people are thinking and today every week I'm in a different country performing for lots of places -- You're actually reading minds. It isn't a trick. We'll try. I don't know what you're thinking. I know how you're thinking. I know the process. This is a gift you had. You were born with but you can make it better? It's like a keyboard player. Everybody can learn to play a piano but not everybody will be beethoven. You have to be something -- be sensitive to people, to the body language, to the eyes. That's why I'm looking at you all the time. Get out of our minds. I can look at you -- perfect because you play football. Listen, you don't call this -- this is not magic. An experiment. We're doing experiments. What's yours for us. You play football. It's fun because we don't have American football in Israel and I want you to close your eyes right now and don't tell me nothing. It's only in the mind. Think, what's usually like a football game score, average. 7-0. 7-0. 14-7. You have millions of possibilities. I want with eyes close to imagine one game, one game only and think of that score of the game. I got it. I don't know anything about football. But I know a thing or two of numbers. Looking at you. You're immediately thought of it, right because it's not a common score. Score. This one was not a common score. Tell me something. Do you ever tell these score to anyone in the audience? No. Did you ever tell me? No. Do you swear. Yep. Tell that you swear. You're yelling at me, I swear to god. I'm like afraid of you. You're in my mind and yelling at me. No, I'm doing something here. You're going to see everything I'm doing -- I don't know what I'm doing actually. I'm writing something here. And, okay, I don't know. This is -- these are numbers, right. I'm not sure this is a score for football. This is the first thing that came to my mind. Okay. Open your eyes. This is the first time you say it, correct? Yes. What was the game. Tell me about the game. I'm embarrassed to say we lost a game in high school. High school. I played a football game in high school. As a football player. It's easy to forget the wins but you can't remember bad defeat. What was the score? We lost the game, 77-7. No way! What! I'm telling you. As soon as he said -- Oh, my -- That is amazing. That's crazy. A am shocked myself. I'm actually -- I'm amazed about that and now I'm even more embarrassed that America knows that I actually lost a football game 77-7. Unbelievable. A big loser symbol. That is incredible. This is the way it works. So humble about it. You're like I'm not really sure. No, this is interesting. So this is an experiment of mind reading. So to understand something. I want you to think about influencing. Let me ask you a question. I wanted -- association game. So think of an object, but don't say, think of an object, you got it. So, I mean everything can think of different objects. Okay. If I'm right don't say anything. For example, you can think of something small or something big or maybe up problem la. That's a nice object. Umbrella. This is not for here. Something I'm inferences somebody else maybe at home. I don't know but -- I hope it's not up umbrella. Think of that object and think of the next association that it gives you. Okay. So now you have something new. Now another negotiation so now something completely new, right so there's no way to track this. This is like -- I do. I have it. Final association. I'm looking at you right now. It's nothing personal. It brings you a little bit sad. I'm -- you can see. Okay. Wow. Okay. So only the last association, the something you got to. My final one. What was your final one. My daughter. Oh, my god. No way.
